The only ingredient ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY is at least 1/2 cup milk. After that, go wild! You can add fruit, yogurt, cookies, ice cream . . . whatever sounds good to you. (Please, no retainers or Star Wars figures.)

Before the Oct. 15 deadline, send as many ideas as you can shake up to:

For those of you who were hit by flying tortillas during Aunt Edna's cooking demonstration at the Utah State Fair, thank you for not suing.

Next year we'll enforce a strict helmet law.

By the way, if you'd like to receive the recipes that Edna skillfully presented during these amazing events, drop her a note at the Deseret News, P.O. Box 1257, Salt Lake City, UT 84110.
